“Black Lite Overkill”

Glowing Greens Miniature Golf
Reviewed October 18, 2009

Tucked into the basement of a building downtown is a pretty special experience to try (especially after a few happy hour drinks). Think miniature golf in a large room in which every square inch is covered with psychedelic black lite paint in a spooky pirate theme. Makes for a fun date!

This glow in the dark, 3-D, mini golf place was tons of fun. I went there with a few of my friends and had alot of fun. One of the best things about it is that it's open late. We went on a Friday night and they didn't close till midnight. They've put alot into their course decorations to say at the least. 3-D glasses only cost $1 at the counter and I definitely recommend them. You may feel a little dizzy at first but it only makes the courses more fun as you try to make it in the hole. It wasn't too busy when we went although depending on what speed you golf at and how many people your with, it could take a while to get through all the courses, having to wait on groups in front of you. They also have an area for birthday parties as well. Although alot of reviews say that its for little kids, I would actually recommend glowing greens for older kids or adults. Getting through all 18 holes takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how fast you put.

Trix are for kids, but we really know that adults love them too. Glowing Greens are for kids, but it's difficult for this adult to love. I think that this is a good place for kids to enjoy some activities when it's cold or rainy outside. I would not recommend Glowing Greens to fellow adults, because after several holes a player realizes that all the remaining holes are pretty much the same, "hit the ball around the corner, then deposit in hole." Don't get me wrong... I love mini golf, but Glowing Greens' creativity stopped at the underwater/pirate theme. I love mini golf courses that present different obstacles at each hole. If this is what you like too, avoid Glowing Greens. Glowing Greens is like a hot stuffy, kids' playroom with psychedelic colors. It's fun at first, then you get bored and then you want to quickly hightail it out of there. The heat, the colors and the 3D glasses can easily make anyone sick in the stomach after 15 minutes. The workers were friendly and high, but I guess that's the only way to actually enjoy this mini golf course.

We went here last week (4 of us) to celebrate a friend's birthday. Found it by searching online and thought it sounded fun!! When we first went down the stairs we were certainly impressed with the decorations and painting. They have created a great atmosphere. The guys working at the desk were very very nice and helpful and they get a big thumbs up for having a great attitude.
The four of us also opted to get the 3D glasses to enhance our glowing golfing pleasure. The first 3 holes or so we were entertained, and were really impressed with all the painting and moving skeletons and all the pirate themed stuff. (although the 3D glasses hurt our eyes very quickly; we put them on occasionally but I suggest just getting one pair that you can all trade off for a small time)
Unfortunately, after the 3rd hole or so we got really bored. The course itself is really, really uninventive. The entire course is on flat ground and they built blocks and other painted styrofoam objects to manuever your ball around either in V, W, L or other sharp angle shapes. But that's it. It is all very angular with no curves. No levels to speak of, no moving obsticals... maybe one "bridge" type obstacle. So with 18 holes, that meant that we were bored and not trying for 15 holes. We were trying to get through it quickly so we could leave. :(
We will probably not come back unless they update their course. I really hope they do because it would be so much better. So far it looks like the money was spent on decorating. That is only part of the experience - we were really there for fun mini golf!!
